Teeth veneers are a simple way to create a beautiful smile makeover
A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory then cemented onto the tooth.
Porcelain veneers create very natural looking teeth and helps strengthen the tooth to provide durability and daily function. Our Veneers are made out of very thin porcelain that is custom made to provide the perfect fit for your teeth and to achieve the desired outcome. Or can also be made of a composite resin material.
Porcelain veneers are non-invasive so there is little pain and discomfort involved in the process. They are attached to the front of the natural tooth, after a slight preparation, and stays in place for a long period of time. The results of a rejuvenated smile can be experienced in a single appointment for composite or over two appointments for porcelain.
Permanently fixed to your own teeth, teeth veneers look and act like they have always been a part of your mouth, providing you with a straighter and healthier looking smile. Teeth veneers can be used on all your front and middle teeth to improve your smile. They are between 0.3mm and 0.5mm thick but once bonded to your teeth, are extremely strong and can help with:
- Spaces between teeth
- Whitening permanently stained or discolored teeth
- Misaligned or crooked teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Unsightly, stained or washed out fillings
- When being attached to your natural tooth, teeth veneers are placed using a light-sensitive resin that hardens under a specially designed light.
- Once placed, your teeth veneers are very strong and will resist most of the forces placed upon them by a normal diet.
- People playing contact sports, should wear a mouth guard to protect their veneers.
- People who grind their teeth must wear a splint to protect their veneers
